3 Cards and a Tag

Hello everyone ~
I have a photo heavy post today, so I'm going to get right to it ~



My first card is for the current CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge (#150)



 I used gold foil cardstock for this SSS Christmas tree die, (discontinued), and gold embossing powder for the Hero Arts sentiment. I also embossed the card base with PTI's Canvas Impression Plate, but it's very subtle...here is a close up:

My next card is for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #32 - Color Challenge:


I love this color combo, and decided to use it to create a Christmas card. All products are from Simon Says Stamp.

My next card is for the Happy Little Stampers - November Sketch Challenge:





 For this card, I used Brusho's to water color the tree, and gold embossing powder for the sentiment. The baubles, bow and star were die cut with gold and red foil cardstock. The tag is from Lil' Inkers, and I embossed the card base with PTI's Linen Impression Plate. Here is a close up:

Lastly, I created a tag for three challenges: 
- Tag You’re It Challenge #35


- Tracey’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge - Day 19


- Happy Little Stampers - November Christmas Challenge - Create a tag



If you're still with me...Thank you so much for hanging in there ~ I use PTI's Polka Dot Parade #9 for the tree (SSS Mint ink) and sentiment (Silver EP/PTI Pure Poppy ink). The tag is Paper Smooches Quote Tag die, and the twine is from The Twinery. And, that's it, kids!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you've had a great weekend and that you have a wonderful week ahead ~
